This year marks my 32nd year of teaching and coaching at East Central.  For all but one of those years, I have taught 6th grade.  This year, I will again be teaching math and science, subjects that I have taught for most of the years I have been here.  I enjoy math and bringing it to life for my students, helping them realize that math is something at which they can be successful.

And then there is science, a subject that looks at and helps us understand our world and how things work.  I am always amazed at how its seems everything works and fits together in the world, all of its complexities.  I try to bring that same amazement to the classroom through the various activities and topics we explore.

I am a 1981 graduate of East Chain High School, a small rural school in southern Minnesota.  I played football, basketball, and ran track.  I attended Bethel University where I majored in Elementary Education and Social Studies.  I played basketball there for one year as a freshmen.   I received my masters degree from the University of Minnesota in 2005.

I grew up on a farm and have two brothers and one sister.
